Sunflower Seeds?

I've seen that sunflower oil doesn't rank well in the Bulletproof Diet, but where do raw organic sunflower seeds score on the color chart? I take it that you probably wouldn't want too much of these, because of the Omega 6's?



Worthy of the diet or not?

  • I would also like to know the answer to this. I've been using sunflower seed butter as part of this diet, as it shares the same fat/protein content as many other nut butters.
  • If I'm not mistaken the whole food is ok. Just not the oil. - Would be better is someone could confirm that though.
  • I'd love to see if anyone has info on this? Raw, shelled sunflower seeds are only $1.99/lb at Trader Joe's, so this would make a nice, cheap option if it's in the green. Anyone?

    Very high polyunsaturated fat, 9g for every 1g saturated, 4.5g for every 1g monounsaturated, very low omega 3, ratio is 1:45, also fat to carb ratio is 2:1. Is classified as mildly inflammatory. Nuts and seeds should be raw and refrigerated, those are probably rancid and treatment is unknown.

  • Of course. :/ Why should I be so lucky?! ;). I know macadamias are a much better choice, and I LOVE raw macadamias, but at $18/lb around here, they are a rare treat!!

    about as much of a treat as it would have been to de-shell them with a rock, the best ones are always the hardest to open ie coconuts.
